Do you need a teddy bear? If so, I might be just the guy for you! My name is Bear, and I am a 15-year-old male neutered black domestic shorthair with claws. I’ve only been at Safe Place for Pets for a very short time, and I’m adjusting okay, but I really miss my dad! I was with him my whole life and loved him so much, but now he’s gone 😿. I knew it was coming and spent as much time next to him on his bed to give him all the comfort that I could, but I knew the moment that he passed and I just couldn’t bear it. I ran away to find a place where I could hide and cry. A nice lady who is a friend of Dad’s took me home with her that night, and I just cried and cried. It was such a comfort when she took me in her arms and held me. I was finally able to rest without being quite so lonely. She couldn’t stand the idea of leaving me all by myself the next day while she went to work, so she brought me here the very next morning.
I’m feeling a bit better since coming to the Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center. The volunteers understand how sad I am and are happy to love and pet me, which helps a lot. It’s kind of strange for me though. I’m in a room with three other cats, and I’m not sure that I like that after being an only pet all my life. There is one little lady named Cherry that I get along with, but I really don’t like the other boy cats. Does that make me a male chauvinist cat? I’m not sure, but I think that if I’m with another cat in my new forever home I’d rather it be a girl cat! I’ve never been with anyone but Dad, so I don’t know how I’d do with children or dogs but I will tell you this. As much as I adored Dad and miss him, I still have lots of love to give to someone who will love me back! One of the volunteers here at Safe Place calls me a love bug, and that’s a pretty good description of me.
Do you think that you might be the one to take a teddy bear home and love him? It would make me so happy. The Safe Place for Pets Welcome Center is only open by appointment, but all you have to do to set a time to come down and fall in love with me is either call the nice lady at 719-359-0201 or email Safe Place at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be waiting!
